It’s been over 20 years since I’ve been to a water park, so I thought, “Why, not?” when Knott’s graciously extended an invitation for us to join them to kick off the opening weekend of Knott’s Soak City located just adjacent to Knott’s Berry Farm theme park. It couldn’t have come at a better time because Orange County got hit with a wave of crazy hot heat that desperately called for some intense water shenanigans to cool down.
I’ll just start out by saying that Tot had a blast at the 13-acre water park. She loved being able to bounce back and forth between the wave pool, lazy river and the Toyota Beach House with ease. JetSet Dad tore things up when it came to the 17 speed, tube, body slides and the all mother of all rides, the Pacific Spin, which drops riders into a 75-foot, six-story funnel. It was the definition of cray-cray.
I was a fan of the 14 private poolside cabanas overlooking the wave pool. Available for rental, Soak City visitors can relax in the shade while enjoying their own private dining area complete with food service and free usage of inner tubes.
For those looking to enjoy the fun with your own family, the park is open 7-days a week from 10 am to 5 pm, and parking is $20. There are plenty of areas to picnic or you can purchase lunch directly inside Soak City.
